to be remembered as one great day in american politics when barack obama with an american mother and a kenyan father, a graduate of the harvard law school, the president of the harvard law review, a senator in just his second year of office runs for president of the united states and is already the number two candidate. >> we're back at the "hardball" college tour at american university. your remarks the other day was so resonant on what the holy father pope francis has been saying. the belief we have a social responsibility, a moral responsibility to look out for people who haven't made it in this country. >> yeah. there's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and
the world can pay their respects. president obama will lead the american delegation attending the services. mr. obama said of mandela what was said of another great emancipator, abraham lincoln: "he belongs to the ages." mandela's legacy, the president said, is a free south africa at peace with itself, an example to the world. for cbs news, i'm scott pelley. good night. captioning sponsored by cbs captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, [ female announcer ] for those who love sweets your season is here. let's just call it the baking time of year. you need special ingredients. you need the staples for homemade. you need safeway sugar for just a buck eighty-eight. and that magic thing that makes everyone want another only two ninety-nine and when hands get messy, quite surely they'll say, yum! wow! yay! what a sweeter holiday. safeway. ingredients for life.
'm scratching my head figuring out this thing. a lot of obama care was sold to the american public and people in the house p and the senate was that it wasn't going to cost a dime. the costs are expanding but as people like you find out when you sign up you're double, triple quadrupling your premiums and your deductibles as well. >> here's the problem. they call it the affordable care act. nothing about it is affordable. it's a plan full of mandates. they have told every american you no longer have freedomof choice in choosing your insurance company or your doctor. what you have are mandates and mandates are expensive. so we're going to find is that everyone is going to pay more and everyone is going to be quite unhappy when they discover it. >> we're going to let you go and maybe obama care covers that throat exam you're going to need. >> you're right. >> listen, the economic freedom plan, the zone, the plan sounds great. thank you very much for joining us and letting us break that exclusive news. >> thank you. >> our catching in crew is here and ready to roll. is an obama care bailout alrea
have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about minorities. what's your plan? >> the republican party should compete for every voter in every city in every state. i think we do that by bringing our message to the people who haven't been hearing it and this is a message of economic empowerment. it's also a message of school choice. if you want to get ahead in our country it's through education. so many people in our big cities are being short changed by a bad school system. we want to make it better through competition, by giving every kid the choice. part of our economic frdom zones is that federal money that comes toetroit isn't going to the school system directly but to the kid and their parents and each parent will decide which school they want to take their money to. >> it's a plan that touches regulation and education as well. >> absolutely. >> obama care, all over the news recently obviously for obvious reasons. we had h
. >>> the obama administration is making a push to get young, healthy americans to sign up for obama care but as the numbers are very slow to pick up, the architect of obama care told our own chris wallace today, it's a lack of promotion, not the botched rollout that is to blame for low enrollment. >> no one has launched a big pr campaign to get these people signed up because of the problems with the federal website. we are about to launch a big pr campaign and that, i think, is going to persuade a lot of people to sign up. >> the white house may not have started its latest pr campaign but state exchanges are certainly looking to attract younger demos using racy ads like this one with internet means like this one like hey, girl, and cutouts of actors like ryan gosling. still, almost half of millennials say they are not going to sign up. joining me is a columnist for the washington times, charlie herd. the president has been promoting this thing for four long years with all kinds of things like wild promises and now one of his own obama care architects says he hasn't promoted it enough and
preventative care for 105 million cares. free preventive care. obama care provides health services to americans including free immunizations for children. free cancer screenings. free mammograms. what is your plan that would allow these folk, 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you've got to pay for it. more people will lose their insurance under obama care. the republican plan is we have a choice. more choices not less. obama care narrows your choices. for competition, selling insurance across state line and above all, we're for driving premiums now. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. yonlt see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. loans. last march, you took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week as i'm sure you know, the head, we're looking at a picture of the drone right there, of amazon, announced they have plans, maybe five years down the road, that loans would come, pick up a package.

president obama. one of the things we'll look at is mandela's relationship with american presidents. both starting with the anti-apartheid movement. also once he became a president. his work with bill clinton, his work with george w. bush. he would tangle with presidents. he was a very fierce critic of president bush on the issue of the iraq war. but also worked closely with him on the issue of aids. and he was also a great consoler of president clinton in his toughest times of the impeachment trial as well. we're going to look at all that today. also look at the -- really talk to some people who knew him very, very well. the human rights lawyer who helped draft a constitution of south africa. his pollster in the presidential elections. we're trying to look at the politician and his impact on american politics. >> and not to take away from his amazing accomplishments as the president of south africa, but the country is still plagued by problems, economic and racial. >> even though they are coming together and all coming together for nelson mandela, you have economic inequality. social ine
obama has been so far on the affordab care act we could have given every american over $1 million, and they could have paid for their own health care for the rest of their lives. and here is gene from new york. the biggest problem with obamacare is that it is a government project. no budget concerns because it is not their money. the supply seems to be endless. so if they lose money or don't care who cares -- it does not work. it cares? is the taxpayers' money. to san michele and e-mail, go to gerriwillis.com. coming up monday, ck with another installment of for users guide. all next week she will be answering your questions on taxes and had to be ready for year-end. lows on friday she will be taking your phone calls in the man's life. that is it for tonight on "the willis report." i'm dennis kneale. thank you for joining us. have a great weekend. ♪lves. constituency booby stars.

he call with president barack obama. the first time contact was made with an american leader in decades. he uses soak social media to congratulate sports teams. we are hoping to ensure equal opportunity. we have a public relations trainer and consultant who has been to iran for a pr conference. joining us now live, do you think it's what you said and others said at this conference that got the message through to the president that the times are a changing. >> i think it's something that the president was all right -- g if you look at what has been happening over the last few months. there is an increasing presence of his profile. it's aimed at a global audience as opposed to a domestic audience. what happens when people poke fun at someone modernizing when it doesn't suit them. i speak of putin taking his shifshirt off and flexing his p. and everyone says yeah, yeah, yeah fnlt. >> it's easier to poke fun at that if it was not genuine. but the president does genuine i will go hiking and putin is a genuine man of action i think that works better than when political leaders pret
of the revelation of the snowden documents. but the fisa court has more to do with americans than you might think. >> host: since 2001, has the patriot act, the fisa surveillance, increased or decreased? >> guest: yeah. it's a great question. i think it's actually been increased. when president obama was a candidate, when he was running for office, he said no more national security that spy on americans. but now that he's president i think he sees the power differently. and he felt if he can be trusted with the dragnet powers. it sounds as if the fisa court allowed actually is an expansion and there's more and more material being collected in bulk and that what is being collected under the foreign intelligence surveillance act even though on americans has also increased. i think there's a possibility for another increase. for awhile until 2011, the government was also collecting e-mail addresses, internet dresses that we visit, the fisa court authorized that. and the government actually stopped collecting all of that information in 2011. but they could do it again because they're authorized to do
. that is the appropriate role for the government and i think most americans agree. which is why they reelected president obama. >> do you think richard's concern? he feels it is being put on him. is that a fair concern? >> i really don't. in this case, accusations like he unfortunately chose to do isn't constructive. i wish folks like him would step back, listen and engage in dialogue and understand the other side's point of view. when you here talk like his, it is evident he is watching fox news and gets the information mostly from right-wing conservative sources and isn't open to other points of view. and that is why i wrote the book. hopefully someone finds a way to see we have to try to work together and not dig in so hard and accept everything we hear from one side or another. >> putting on your political hat for a moment. the rollout of the health care website: has it hurt democrats polytically? >> that is not a political issue. it is critical. and obama believes that we have to get the website on so people can get on and comparison shop. so, what it does to us polpoin favor isn't the issue. i be
in american history. medium incomes are lower than they were five years ago, the uncertainty of obama care, the horrific tax code, less opportunity for people to rise up. >> rick, he is criticizing something that happened under his watch. >> yeah, here's the problem that i have. first of all, and john will love hearing me say this. i'm not sure that government is a big answer. >> we are all happy to hear you say that. >> i knew you would be. but here's the problem. most people analyze this in terms of do you think obama's policies produce growth, anti-growth. growth is actually not t issue because it only matters if it's shared. if a company that's making $14 billion in profits this year makes $20 billion next year, what's the difference if they don't share the benefit? >> but john, it is kind of the issue because sometimes a rising tide lifts all boats to quote john f. kennedy, rick's favorite president. if you look at what happened under the reagan term, the lower 20% and the top 20% increased by double digits after those tax rate cuts. >> i'm one of those people who believes that income
. plus president obama uses a main stream media interview to attack the media. >> the american people are good and they are decent and yes, sometimes we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them. and splinter them. >> was that a fair shot? or are we being too sensitive? i'll tell you what i think. how sensitive should news outlets be about the anniversary of the sandy hook school massac massacre. >>> and a man who's name is synonymous with new year's eve. ryan sechrest. >> i have said to all of my partners when i signed on to each of them, that i will work 110% for you. i will work just as hard for you as if i only had one job. >> and who would you name is most important media person of the year? the website i want media has surveyed thousands of people and we will reveal their answer. we do have a lot to cover so let's get started. it's time for "reliable sources." >>> thank you for tuning in. you know, one way to learn about the state of the news media is to talk about the comings and going talent. a key part of the morning show's f

obama in 2008, 2012. i think mill helpals like the rest of americans are waking up to the fact that the affordable care act is anything but affordable. [applause] >> when the government gets -- i think millenials are realizing, 57% or realizing that premiums have gone up. deductibles have gone up and the government gets involved in any sector, education, you get millenials with a trillion dollars in student debt, whether it's housing, the housing bubble, and now with healthcare, where premiums skyrocketed, and deductibles also skyrocketed, and the quality of healthcare is going to decrease, but prices are going to escalate out of control. >> i can understand why 38% -- can't understand why 38% thi it's a great idea. it's built on guys like you paying more than you've should pay according to the market so you can bay for old geesers like me. and i want to say, thank you very much for paying for my health care but i don't think it's what you want to do. >> exactly. and i would say that millenials were sold on a bill of goods, that prices aren't going to go up. if anyone mentioned
-backed protests, demanding 15 bucks an hour. and president obama agreeing it's time for a raise in the minimum wage. >> i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard-working americans across the entire country. it will be good for our economy. >> but, as the unemployment rate is heading in the right direction, will this wage hike have jobs taking a hike? hi, everyone, this is "bulls and bears." let's get right to it. the bulls and bears. gary b. smith. tracy burns. john nas max ferris. along with bernard whitman. ll pushing the minimum to the max push out jobs just as they're coming back? >> yes, absolutely, this is the wrong thing to do in an economy that's showing some signeds of recovery. remember, they're targeting the wrong people. this is a great union and democratic slogan to say, look at the ceo, how much he's making. you can't raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour? take mcdonald's nor example. they will tell you, they don't set the wages for the local franchises. these are your moms and pops. these are your neighbors out there. they can't afford -- they don't h

down on the offense against obama care for a long time. come 2014, come 2016, are americans are going to be saying, we have been this going on four, five, six years at this point. >> there's a big difference between 2014 and 2016. 2014, there's still a lot of kinks. and any government policy is very difficult to implement. but let's not forget, in 2011 and all the way through 2012, the president took a victory lap with it. he's the one who in late 2011 said, yeah, call it obama care. i'm going to own it. the campaign, they sent out e-mails. so obama care. so they wanted to own it. then they had to implement it. and that's where they got in trouble. because they did this victory dance, if you will, and then all of a sudden, the website happens. now, to think you could be that successful, just simply because the first part, which children under 26 went on, contraception, there were a lot of positives, which republicans agreed with many of those things in the negotiations or during the negotiations. but to take that victory dance and then to have to implement it, then you have to step ba
. and for the last half decade, this week is the fifth anniversary of the winning of the president i by barack obama -- presidency by barack obama. barack obama and the rise of a new kind, a new, more ambitious and i might even say radical kind of american liberalism. regarding the '80s, i think the one column that sort of captures it the best is the one in which bill clinton says during his presidency when we look back on that era -- he meant the cold war era -- and and we long for a, i made a crack the other day. i said, gosh, i miss the cold war. it was a joke. i mean, i didn't want really miss it, but you get the joke. and the point was that we had this myth created after conservativism in the decade over the '80s, utterly destroyed and undid what was left of the soviet empire of commune ill. this myth -- communism. this myth that there was a great national consensus on how to confront the soviets. now, there was in the '50s and the '60s, but it dissolved after the vietnam era. and there was a great division in the country. and the '80s were distinguished by the fact that there was a total break

conversations, if you can call it that. the awkward dynamics of president obama and president putin of russia. this is not going to go well. the u.s. government accusing russian diplomats as scamming american ollars. they don't like putin-care, but they do like obamacare. at the it's the same program that many want to expand. but they don't look at where they have been throwing them. dam, it's good to see you. >> it's good to see you as well. >> would he make of this? >> i think that this is an example that many finally get across to people that medicaid is a failed program. do you remember the bridge to nowhere last decade and a crystallized in people's minds? i think that this story about russian diplomats may finally get people to focus on the billions of dollars of waste a federal entitlement that should be sent back to the states, just like we did with welfare reform in the 1990s and it really is outrageous. diplomats of another country figuring that let's go ahead and american taxpayers to finance her health care costs. ne must tip your hat to these russians. they found a way to get thi
in the long run that obama may be one of the greats trainers of conservatism in american history. we never generation. [applause] but i'm going to post this and take some questions someone does mccain. i want to close this with the question. i want you to understand how deeply i feel. if all we do is be negative, if we do is take advantage of every mistake they make, we will have totally failed to serve the country. the fact is you need a positive model a breakout to replace the prison guards. you need a vision of a dramatically better future to organize a energies and to arouse our excitement and to get this moving forward again. we have to have a conservative movement which is dedicated to meeting together all of the pioneers of the future, dedicated to developing and extraordinarily exciting sense of an american future and dedicated to open a program so when we know what we are doing. i am tired of personality oriented campaigns dominated by negative attack ads a whose net result is nothing positive happens for america. i wrote "breakout" as a starting point to the conversation for the
t confidants and the man that until this summer was obama's top national security -- why he says the u.s. doesn't need to cut a deal with hamid karzai of afghanistan. >>> next, how to understand the booming american economy. i'll ask the man who presided over great growth and some critics charge also helped create many bubbles. former fed chair, alan greenspan. >>> and as we approach the first anniversary of the new town massacre, what can the u.s. learn from other nations about gun policy. i'll take you to japan for a fascinating look at a nation that loves violent video games but has a gun death rate that is very different from america's. it's a preview of a gps special airing tonight at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >>> but first, here's my take. when nelson mandela was released from prison in 1990, i remember being struck by how old-fashioned he seemed. he spoke with the language cadence and manners from the 1930s, 40s and 1950s. he reminded me of the great national leaders of the post colonial world who led their countries to freedom. he had the same way of speaking and dressing, the s
there. i was a member of the inter- american dialogue for many years. i was co-vice chairman. then i had a very interesting and fruitful visit to the white house with president obama. i am here as his guest on an official visit. then i went to another group and spoke to the general assembly of the oas. i then went to speak with the head of the democratic party in the house, nancy pelosi. i spoke with members of the house in the democratic party and then i spoke with speaker boehner and a few of the republicans in the house. i have been working with some of them for many years. not only as foreign minister. -- not only as president now i , but also as foreign minister. now i am here. i had a dinner at the center for yesterdayi had a dinner at the center for american progress. it is a think tank. i'm having dinner tonight with the independent counsel. they have asked me to address them. what have been the main messages i have tried to convey to the u.s. officials and to the u.s. public? first, i would like to thank the u.s. government and both parties for the help that they have given us s
. michael erik dyson, you met him. so many american political activists really cut their teeth fighting for nelson mandela. >> no question. i'm of the same generation of president obama. and taking a stand against apartheid in the university community and more broadly in terms of dealing with the disinvestment strategies. also challenging ronald reagan's engagement approach. i think conservatives get amnesia here when they forget that dick cheney wanted to put him on the terrorist list and insisted he stay there. that ronald reagan resisted. he said on the one hand that else in. mandela should be released, but he depended on a white supremacist government to reform itself from within. >> and the issue, mar where? >> when will you ever get tired of beating up on darth vader, who said nelson mandela is a good man. as we saw in the earlier segment, it was a complicated situation. the anc was a terrorist organization at one point. he has since said great things about nelson mandela. i like that what's been said about nelson mandela is said in the same way the pope said what he did. forgiven
the deadline they had set for themselves. absolutely. obama care has not been good for hispanics and think about states like california, tucker. states like florida which are dropping millions of people, a lot of americans are losing their health care insurance. those two states have a big hispanic population. >> my impression of the white house strategy on winning back hispanics support has been always to say look at the republicans, they hate you. you got to continue to be the strategy. >> yeah. i think so. even on immigration, tucker. hispanics are just -- are just not buying this line any more that progress is not being made on immigration because of republicans. just think about how the president, from the very beginning said look if i don't get 100% on immigration i want nothing. for a lot of hispanics they are questioning that. why just a few weeks ago the president finally said you know what? to do this step by step on immigration and not try to do one big bill given the fact that obama care has been such a disaster in terms of doing this all in one big piece. >> getting what you w

. bush presidency, then at that .70% of americans say the u.s. was less respected around the world than it has been in the past. when barack obama came into office, we know that around the world u.s. relations improved. about 56% say this was the case in 2009 and in 2012. today it is back to 70%. likely --s are more in the credits have not changed it is not just partisanship driving. but there was a partisanship story there. host: what do we gather from all of that the echo -- from all of it? though americans have seen that the u.s. has lost power in the world, that does not mean we cannot do more. one of the focuses is on problems at home. be ok with letting other countries help solve world problems and to not have it all be on the shoulders of the united states. she is a senior researcher at the pew research center, joining us live on the sunday morning. the poll is available online at pew research.org. thank you very much for being with us. are you more positive or more skeptical about our role in the world? is it in fact declining? do you agree or disagree with the findings? give us
